Beware cheap e-cigs. They could deter you from reaching that all important goal of getting off the tobacco onto a non cancerous alternative.
The e-cig industry is still in daipers. So its not surprising that there is vast competition to get into what is a multi billion dollar industry. Without regulation in the past this has meant that there has been a proliferation in the marketplace of cheap, poor quality product that has done more damage than good in helping smokers transition away from tobacco.
The problem is that an electronic cigarette looks very homogeneous making it difficult to distinguish between the good and the bad. So here are a few quick tips to help you decide which electronic cigarette to buy.
1. Are the suppliers associated with any regulatory association. (TVECA, ECITA are two)
2. Product Warranty – Is a product warranty provided (Is there a business address and phone number on the website – maybe even a picture of the headquarters) – A reputable supplier will offer a minimum of a six month warranty on the battery they provide…if they dont……then its probably because there batteries only last a few weeks…
3. Product Liability Insurance. A real supplier should be insured to cover liabilty of their product to third party injury. This is a good indication that the company you are dealing with is bona fida company.
4. Customer Service – Is there an easy procedure for contacting the company regarding queries and issues that may arise.
So there you have it. A few simple tips to buying your first e-cig. Simple really, but often it is the simple things we overlook that get us disappointed. And when it comes to something serious like getting off tobacco….in the words of Mr Nimoy…you wannna live long and prosper!!!
